New York’s Deadliest Terrorist Attack Since Sept. 11, 2001.

November 1, 2017

 

 New York truck attacker planned for weeks and carried out rampage in the name of ISIS, officials say.

 

NEW YORK — Authorities said Wednesday that the 29-year-old man accused of mowing down pedestrians and cyclists on a Manhattan bike path, killing eight people, had plotted for weeks before carrying out the attack in the name of the Islamic State.

 

Officials identified the suspected attacker as Sayfullo Saipov, a legal permanent resident of the United States who arrived in the country from Uzbekistan in 2010 through a diversity visa program. They said Saipov was influenced by the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, and its violent tactics after he came to the United States.

 

Authorities found a note in the truck Sayfullo Saipov allegedly used in the New York terror attack claiming he did it in the name of ISIS, a senior law enforcement official told CNN. The note was in English, the source said. 

 

The driver of a rental truck drove down a busy bicycle path in New York near the World Trade Center, killing eight people and injuring about a dozen others in what officials said was an “act of terror.”

 

After crashing the truck into a school bus, the suspect exited the vehicle while displaying imitation firearms and was shot in the abdomen by a police officer, according to the NYPD. The suspect, a 29-year-old man, is in police custody and was taken to a hospital for treatment, officials said.
